ASIATIC Development Berhad Endow UPM RM1 Million

03.06.2008
"ASIATIC is a corporation with experiences in palm oil industry. It is easy for us to co-operate with UPM, which is a University with experiences in doing research of agriculture."

University Putra Malaysia (UPM) having benefit an endowment sum RM1 Million from growing plantation companies, Asiatic Development Berhad (ADB) in conjunction of Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) among them.

The endowed sum shall be known as constitute the Tan Sri (Dr.) Lim Goh Tong Endowment Fund and to be jointly controlled and administered by ADB and UPM in accordance with the MoA here, today.

UPM Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Dr. Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah said ADB and UPM agree that disbursements released from the fund shall be utilized specifically for the objectives of the grant of scholarships, the funding of research programmes and educational activities.

“The grant of scholarships under the name of The Tan Sri (Dr.) Lim Goh Tong Scholarship to deserving students,” he said.

The MoA were signing by ADB chairman, Tan Sri Mohd Amin Osman on behalf of ADB and UPM Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Dr. Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah on behalf UPM.

Mohd Amin said ASIATIC is a corporation with experiences in palm oil industry. It is easy for us to co-operate with UPM, which is a University with experiences in doing research of agriculture.

“We hope that the UPM students who involve in the practical programs are not only improving their capability in ASIATIC but also in all the company of Genting Groups.

“UPM has been chosen to take the social responsibility to educate and to produce students with high quality so that they can be a leader,” he said.

ADB (Asiatic) is one of the fastest growing plantation companies listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia which incorporated in Malaysia on 29 September 1977. It become a wholly owned subsidiary of Genting Berhad on 22 February 1980 to spearhead Genting’s Plantation business.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
